As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Young Biden: “I’ll Kill Your Son”

Vice President Joe Biden this week bragged that he once threatened to kill a boy who had pushed his sister off her bike.

From remarks in New York City speaking to Vital Voices, a women’s charity, at an event “celebrat[ing] men who combat violence against women,” according to the Daily Beast.

I remember coming back from Mass on Sunday. Always the big treat was, we’d stop at the donut shop . . .  We could get donuts, and my dad would wait in the car. As I was coming out, my sister tugged on me and said, “That’s the boy who kicked me off my bicycle.”

So I went home — we only lived about a quarter mile away — and I got on my bicycle and rode back, and he was in the donut shop with his parents . . .

I walked up behind him and smashed his head next to the counter . . .I’m not recommending it.

His father grabbed me, and I looked at his son and said, “If you ever touch my sister again, I’ll come back here again and I’ll kill your son.”

Now, that was a euphemism. I thought I was really, really in trouble . . . My father never once raised his hand to any one of his children—never once—and I thought I was in trouble. He pulled me aside and said, “Joey, you shouldn’t do that, but I’m proud of you, son.”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest was not familiar with the remarks when asked about them today, recommending reporters contact the vice president’s office for an explanation of the point Biden was hoping to convey.

I’m not sure that this was exactly what Vital Voices was thinking of when it staged a conference on violence against women, but thanks anyway for your charming and likely apocryphal story, Mr. Vice President.

  1. Why does he always state things that (some) people would say, once having a beer to many?
    Ex: I can get that football clear across the football field.
    Ex: I know I can beat that professional wrestling man.

  2. Good F#@king Luck trying to get any “comments” from the ‘White House’ or “contact” the “VP office” nowadays… especially with this weak, sycophant & useless “media”.

  3. OT: A couple of time since early this morning, I have heard that Countries such as China, N. Korea, and Russia have made comments regarding the information released. Just a few mins. ago on Fox they stated that China was tweeting about it as well. Has anyone seen this news on any website?

  4. House Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R.,Ind.) accused Rep. leadership of reneging on a deal made with him to get his support on the 1.2 trillion bill.
    He stated Thursday evening he was very surprised to see the billon the floor. “The American people deserve better.”
    He was the last Rep. to cast his ballot in favor of allowing the House to vote on the bill. He was told by leadership that they would pull the bill, once the rule was passed and replace it with a short-term continuing resolution favored by rank-and-file conservatives.
    He said it does many things, what is most important is what it does not do. He said. “It fails to address o’s dangerous executive action on immigration and fails to include many of the solutions that could have been passed in January with a Rep. House and Senate in an open process.
    Now I appreciate what he may be saying. However did he really believe them. In other words as my other grandfather and a couple of great Uncles would say years ago, while discussing politics and current events at the time. Politicians are all crooks. You may have to live in Louisiana, or study Louisiana history to appreciate that they were not being ugly.
    Now some people say we had…….to do that so we would be put in bad light down the road. I appreciate that thought as well. However that reminds of being a parent. In other words, if you say to yourself, I can’t be to hard on correcting my toddler, child, teenager, because down…….the road, I may be put in bad light by my child.

    • Weren’t people saying that Boehner would give Obama everything that he wanted? They were right. All we hear from the Republicans are words. Words mean nothing, the saying is, actions speak louder than words and Boehner displayed the worst actions. Why did Boehner do that? Because he thought Obama would veto the bill anyway? He let the American people down and he really looks cowardly now. He made a deal with the devil. No good will come from this billion dollar payout. America won’t benefit from this health plan and immigration backstabbing.

      • Tell me what a shutdown would have done, besides make a quixotic point after the Rep majority even gets in, hurt govt employees, add more to the playbook of the Party of No, etc. Oh, and I guess some think it would have kept Obama from going to Hawaii–why would it?

  5. I seriously think that he is having some senility issues. He’s always been a bit of a blowhard, but the last couple of years have been something else. Scary.

    • Poor Old Joe. They cracked his skull twice as I recall and probably failed to put back in all the parts. There is always the possibility that he was born with the Gaffe Gene and the Thug Gene as well. Daily evidence would suggest that may be the problem–genetic deformity.

  6. So right now the Democratic nominees for president are Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren? How did my country fall apart so fast?!?!?!

    • I agree. I think everyone has at least one intelligent relative or neighbor that they admire, trust, respect, that they would prefer more than the three listed.

      • I’d prefer my weird uncle Harold. He’s not really dumb (see Biden) he’s never claimed to be Native American when he knows damn good and well he’s not (see Warren) and he’s never gotten Americans killed in Benghazi (see Hillary). He Does have a tendency to stare inappropriately, but hey, maybe he’s just paying attention??
